Fishing Luce Bay, South West Scotland - Advice Needed

Discussion in 'Sea Fishing Forum - Shore, Boat & Kayak Fishing' started by Willy Nelson, Apr 10, 2008.

    Willy Nelson I hate fishing with the Slug.

    Me and the Slug are having an away day to SW Scotland in early May. Heard Luce Bay was ok for fishing (shore ony). Does any body have any advice or know areas worth a go. We've never fished SW Scotland before and need all the help we can get.

    Cheers

    Hi Willy,
    I have fished luce bay mate, it can be very good for bass, although i must admit i have never fished it this early in the year, Genrally June onwards...

    A few Luce Bay Bass...

    You can catch Bass from most of the beaches in Luce Bay, here are a few i would give a go..

    Sandhead,

    New England Bay,

    Terrally Bay,

    Kilstay Bay,

    Calliness Point,

    Mary port Bay,

    You will catch fish on Bait, lugworm or crab can work well on a two hook rig on the flood tide...
    The Best time for plugging is at first light or dusk, surface lures work best..



    Good Luck Lads... :yes:

    I think the area around the Mull and Luce Bay has great potential for Kayak fishing, Luce Bay area should be ideal for bass fishing from the Kayak, but i would seek guidance on fishing around the mull head area as at some stages of the tide the run is unbelievable, unless you are into whitewater rafting... :scare: :scare: i think if you ventured around the mull head at the wrong state of the tide your next port of call would be the Isle of Man... :whistle:

    Good Luck :yes: :happy:

    Just back from a few days up there. We tried for bass at a few marks that usually produce for us. In two days we only had one bass and that was taken on a beachcaster using peeler at distance. The water temp is down this year (see my earlier post), & the summer spieces haven't arrived yet. There was no sign of any bait fish, we didn't find any peelers either, so until these show up I think the bass fishing will be a rather hit or miss affair. From previous experience things should improve from about the end of the month the mackerel are usually about by then and everything starts to switch on.
